Child Custody Battle

Family & Friends: I have not been someone who has spoken of my struggles often or asked for help. I have been blessed well beyond my hard times, but sometimes you just need to tell people your story. God has placed all of you in my path and I'm in a place where I need to swallow my pride and ask for help; even praying for me and my children daily can make an enormous difference. Many of you know, but many of you may not know what my kids and I have been going through for the last 9 months. Essentially, my ex-wife has been keeping them from me and violating our Custody Order without any legitimate reason. I love my kids dearly and they deserve consistent quality time with me just as much as I do with them; and we are being wrongfully deprived of that. I have spent over $11,000 in legal fees over the past 6 months fighting against this and it is suffocating me; many of you know how challenging child support can be and how discouraging it can be with extra expenses stacked on top; I haven't been able to keep up with the legal fees associated with this battle. We are so close to bringing this ordeal to a final resolution to restore what is right; but I really need some assistance from anyone who is willing and able to help me fight for my kids. By June 1st I need $7,000 to pay off legal fees and bring this to a close. I will continue to work hard and be diligent as I have through all of this; any donation and assistance no matter how small the amount would be amazing, greatly appreciated, and go towards a just and honorable cause. I am fully faithful that God will provide the wisdom and the means to bring my children and I back together; and I hope you can contribute in any way you feel moved to do so.
